Synthetic insulation and reflectivity take this sleeping pad down to 15F
There is a non-insulated version of this pad as well that is good down to 35F and it will save you around 2oz of weight if you are interested in that.
THICK! 3 ¼ inches
The outer baffles are thicker than the inner baffles and this helps to keep you centered in the middle. I toss and turn and these outer baffles help me to stay on the pad.
One way valve is awesome. You blow in and no air escapes.
Easy to adjust the amount of air that you want.
Deflation valve really works well. Very quick to release air.
